Amamabere-ga-nyinamwiruabere ga NyinaMwiru is a cultural site with remarkable history located in western Uganda in Fort portal town. You can stop by while on your tour to Semuliki national park for birding safari or viewing the hot springs OR to Kibale national park for chimpanzee trekking or to Queen Elizabeth national park for a wildlife safari and boat excursion. This rock is actually as a result of formation of stalagmites and stalactites information which we leave for the geographers and enjoy the cultural stories attached to this cave. It is nestled between several trees and a beautiful water falls.

For the cultural enthusiasts, there is a rich cultural history attached to these rocks which form scenic caves with streams of water above them causing refreshing waterfalls. The Batoro ( the tribe located in this area) have a strong belief attached to these caves with an interesting myth told through the generations about them. The caves were named after King Bukuku’s daughter named Nyinamwiru, loosely translated ‘Amabere Ga Nyinamwiru’ would be ‘Breasts of Nyinamwiru’. King Bukuku was one of the ancient Kings of the Batembuzi Dynasty that ruled that time and were believed to be demi-gods by their subjects, often disappearing to the under ground at given times. The princess was a beautiful young lady who had a strong personality. She refused to marry the man her father the King had chosen for her as was the custom in the day preferring to choose her own spouse.

This greatly infuriated the King and his subjects who could not understand how anyone could disobey the King. The King then ordered that her breasts be cut off because of her disobedience, this would then ensure that she would never get married to whoever she would choose and never be able to nurse children. It is strongly believed that the scenic rocks in this location are her breasts oozing milk since that day.

From this site, you can  hike to Nyakasura hill which will give you views of 3 different crater lakes and a visit to the marking of a large foot in the area believed to belong to one of the last Batembuzi dynasty people who were giants.
